Fractures are disruptive. Fractures hurt. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do.
Fractures are costly in not
only in terms of money but also time and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who
have osteoporosis. Vancouver Disc Centers sees many Vancouver
osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like
nutritional supplementation to preempt
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Vancouver chiropractic patients
strong and healthy.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Vancouver chiropractor is
quite aware that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D supports the
health of bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and
strengthening preferably should begin in the teen
years, but supplementing at any age is of value. A recent
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States lists
a couple amazing facts:
(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the United States could be avoided
if every adult with osteoporosis in the EU and US used
calcium and vitamin D and
(B) lots of money could be saved: €5.7 billion in the EU and $3.3 billion in
the US. (1)
Those are some huge figures!
Vancouver Disc Centers surely encourages support
of this effort to save money and, more importantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Vancouver Disc Centers is quite confident
that if you are going to make the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You
want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That is
where the form of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining
and maintaining proper levels of vitamin D is also
key for bone and general health. This is a problem
for people around the world. Why? Absorption. Absorption may
be hindered in conditions like obesity in which nutrients
get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are known
for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that require special drugs that predispose the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol well.
The recommendation in this new research paper is to take
oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and
has a higher rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers sees this as important.
